We have built up our selection of fly tying materials and hooks as well now that we have the space for it in our big new shop that we moved into in April of 2011. Our fly inventory has grown to over 1500 innovative patterns from some of the most respected companies in the business, and this year we have expanded our selection of saltwater flies. We also have the streamside accessories you need. CFS is locally owned and operated, serving both locals and visitors to our great Roaring Fork Valley. We cater to experienced and novice fly fishermen.

We are glad to share our local knowledge and are committed to giving personal attention to our clients and customers.  Our Carbondale, Colorado Fly Shop strives to offer quality items at reasonable prices, and we're thankful to have many repeat clients who appreciate value, high performance, and personal service.  Please stop by, call or e-mail anytime if you have any questions regarding the latest fishing conditions, gear, what flies are hot, or just to say hello.

Interested in a trip to our area?  Our valley has a well-known reputation for the abundance of quality public waters, with two officially designated gold medal streams flowing through the heart of it. You can find just about any style of trout fishing within a few minutes of Carbondale--from the big-shouldered, mystical Colorado; to riffle-filled freestones like the Roaring Fork and Crystal, the insect and trout rich tailwater of the Frying Pan, to countless small high country streams and lakes filled with brookies and cutthroat.  Check out our report page for the latest conditions, check out our guide trip page for details on booking a guided float or wade trip, check out our lodging page for a list of area hotels, lodges, bed and breakfasts, and campgrounds, or give a call anytime we can be of help.
